in the military. we want to raise taxes on the wealthy, we want to make investments in education, and job training, and infrastructure and basic research and development and don't want to imposed a huge burden on the poor and working class. at least we have a budget now and at least democrats now can show that deficit reduction can be done responsible. responsibly. >> the lack of a bunt has been an effective talking point for republicans. why do you think they haven't reached an agreement? >> because they're democrats. they have a hard time reaching an agreement about anything. that's why they're democrats. the progressive caucus shows that it is possible to reduce the budget deficit by taking even more away from big corporations reducing corporate welfare to an even larger extent reigning in tax loopholes, and so-called tax expenditures. the democratic budget and senate budget is a very good place to begin. i think the progressive caucus's budget is much better. >> analysts are saying this budget is to the left of obama. many on the left would say we should have expected that. does this give the

in the entitlement programs and have you debunk them one by one. the first lie the payroll tax hike is killing the retail economy. that is false there? >> well, there are a couple of things false there. first of all there is no payroll tax hike. what happened on january first was that the payroll tax rate was restored to what it was two or three years ago. let's not forget what we're bound to forget at one point or another that we reduced the payroll tax on employees by 2 percentage points as a way of producing relief in these economic hard times for americans. so it was really an economic relief program not a cut in social security tax. and i think what is it really at work here is that critics of social security are the enemies of social security want to paint the program as though it's too expensive for america to sustain. that's really--that is really a lie because in fact social security benefits in this country are far--they're paul trypaltrycompared to what other countries have. >> cenk: that leads to lie number two entitlement benefits for millionaires and billionaires is a huge proble

relied on the more than $600 billion in tax revenue to help balance the budget. the senate considered five amendments yesterday as it started debating its budget resolution, but today's senators will consider several more starting at about 11:00 am eastern and then calling it a voter rama. but the process could take as long as ten hours. "politico" reports that one of the five that was passed yesterday was a recommendation to eliminate the medical device tax in the affordable care act. even though the votes are non-binding it could be an issue that could come up down the line, and help fund health care reform. device manufacturers don't like it for obvious reasons, and claim it will stifle innovation and kill jobs. and gun control is going to be the first order of business when the senate gets back from its two-week break. harry reid put a new package on the calendar. we're back after the break. stay with us. ♪ >> if you believe in state's rights but still support the drug war you must be high. >> "viewpoint" digs deep into the issues of the day. >> do you think

to republican's ideas about lowering taxes they still trust the president to handle the economy. 65% said u.s. budget deficit should be reduced by cutting spending. but 35% said they trust the democrats more. so to regain the public's trust they have done an autopsy of the 2012 campaign. the rorpt has a lot of style but not a lot of serious substance. in it the word messaging appears 77 times technology in there 42 times, and then there is the long list of things that got no mention at also. health care inequality and others. the plan also pointed to some other issues, and no bashing poor people at all. the plan says low-income americans are hardworking people who want to become hard-working middle-income americans of course paul's plan would make it harder than ever to allow poor people to join the middle class. next up, reagan. enough already. the youngin's at all don't even remember him. they also pledge to be flexible on gay rights even though republicans are spending millions defending the discriminatory defense of marriage act, and finally immigration reform and re
